Monsters, Monsters Everywhere

Halloween is quickly approaching and with it MONSTERS! Costumes, decorations, movies, books etc. Why is it that kids are drawn to these mythical or fantastical creatures? For many of the same reasons that many kids love scary stories and movies. 1) They help kids face fears. Deep down kids know that monsters aren't real so going through the motions of being scared and then talking themselves out of it helps develop that skill. The next time they need to face a fear like jumping off a high dive, introducing themselves to a new friend or performing on stage they can draw from that experience. It helps them say, "there isn't really anything to be scared of, I am brave enough and strong enough
